thanks

Numskull thanks. Painting some Conrad's want to get the skin deep. But I agree with you the old school spin atom (bob pond foam construction is the best skin plug ever). thanks for your help Charlie

Createx opaque sky blue is a good choice for a traditional eelskin colored plug.

I’ve used skins over most colors imaginable and I don’t really think it matters much to the fish. You can get some cool effects seeing a green or yellow tint coming through the skin depending on what is underneath it.
